This article focuses on redress for torture victims in Nepal and Bangladesh. Drawing on fieldwork in Nepal and Bangladesh, we show that seeking redress is not a straightforward process of detection, documentation and advocacy but is conditioned by a relation between legal provisions, the practice of human rights work and political mobilisation.
This work is part of ‘A Comparative Analysis of the Documentation of Torture and Ill-Treatment in Low-Income Countries’ project supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the UK Department for International Development.
